? Listen to the Story of the father who was being punished in the grave!

وعن ابى هريرة قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏:‏ ‏ “‏إِذَا مَاتَ اِبْنُ آدَمَ اِنْقَطَعَ عَمَلُهُ إِلاَّ مِنْ ثَلاَثْ‏:‏ صَدَقَةٍ جَارِيَةٍ ،أو عِلْمٍ يُنْتَفَعُ بِهِ، أَوْ وَلَدٍ صَالِحٍ يَدْعُوْ لَهُ‏”‏ ‏(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم‏)‏‏)‏‏.‏

My dear respected brothers and elders Imam Muslim rahmatullahi alayhi reports on the authority of Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu anhu (May Allah be pleased with him) that Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam mentioned:

“When a man dies, when an individual dies his deeds come to an end except for three deeds, three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity), he spent somewhere wherein that deed that ‘amalit carries on carries on even whilst he’s alive and after his demise. He built a well, he donated towards a well through his spending a child became Haafize Qur’an;

No. 2- That knowledge which is beneficial, people benefitted from it. He writes a book, he gave a lecture because of which people started practising.

No 3 – A virtuous descendant who prays for him (for the deceased).”

An incident comes to mind, my dear respected brothers & sisters.

There was once a father, who after his demise was being punished in the grave. My brothers Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, before I finish this incident, the Sahabah narrate after every fardh namaz after every salah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam used to read this dua:

اللهم اِنِّى اَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ عَذَابِ الَقَبْرِ

Oh, Allah, I seek refuge from the punishment of the grave. My brothers because it’s the first stage that once a person dies it’s the first stage. If he is successful in the grave he’s successful forever and ever.

So, this father was being punished inside the grave. After a short time, Allah Ta’ala commanded the angels to uplift his punishment.

The angels of Allah Ta’ala enquired as to what the reason was. Allah Ta’ala informed them, that this father left behind a young child, this young child enrolled in a madrasah, enrolled in these evening makatib that we have, that we look down upon.

Slowly after frequenting himself on a daily basis, he started learning from Alif, Baa, Taa today is that day, O Angels today is that day, after months of effort from his teachers, from his apas, after effort of his beloved mother, today is the day when he recited ‘Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Raheem’, ‘Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Raheem’,

When this sinless, ma’soom, young son recited bismillah the meaning of which we all know my brothers, ‘I begin in the name of Allah Ta’ala who is the most gracious the most merciful’ I felt embarrassed that how can I punish that father of this child who is proclaiming that I’m the most gracious the most merciful’.

My brothers & Sisters one can clearly understand the value of our Deeni Institutions, our evening Makatib, Our full-time Madaris.

Abu Hurairah (RAA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“Sadaqah does not decrease property and Allah increases the honour of him who forgives, and no one will humble himself for Allah’s sake except that Allah raises his status.” Related by Muslim.
